A BOURNEMOUTH hotel has become the first place in the UK to offer a vegan wedding.

The Green House Hotel, in Grove Road, has won awards for its eco credentials and already offers a substantial á la carte vegan menu.

It has come up with the package after becoming increasingly popular with vegans due to its ethical sourcing and commitments to sustainability.

Couples and guests can enjoy a vegan menu with locally-sourced, seasonal produce; a vegan wedding cake by Lucie Loves to Bake; vegan hair and make-up by Greener Beauty and even vegan shoes by designer Charlotte Mills, as well as organic, Fairtrade UK blooms from Bournemouth florist Hillview Flowers and Events.
